    No one starts out at the deep end of the pool. It took me 15+ years to get bad…

    I’m not saying you are or aren’t, but that behavior, if kept up long term, is problematic for many people.

    You also seem overly defensive about the implication you could have a problem.

    I say this as someone who was exactly like you. Then it was 3-4 after work, and drinking “socially” every weekend… Etc etc… And so forth.

    Not judging, just throwing it out there for you to think about.

    As an alcoholic, I can say with complete certainty. That some one who drinks everyday to “de-stress” IS one or very much is in danger of becoming an alcoholic if it goes on long enough.

    Second, specifically mentioning “it’s not the alcohol” is usually a huge red flag, it means they’re worried they may actually have a problem and are over compensating.
